These are some photos I uploaded and meant to post about, but the week has been too full.  I thought I’d get them up today before I forgot.  It’s too hard to upload photos to waste them!

1.  contact cases at Wal*Mart in the front of the store with a little contact kit enclosed for cute travel.  I’m SO into this.  I hope they have room for some drops in them to for you contact wearers.  If I still wore contacts, I would SO be buying.

2.  The church library in it’s lime green glory.  Hopefully we can improve on that.  BUT, the concrete block wall was torn out last week, and it’s exciting to see much more usable space.  The two rooms were always too small.  It’s getting exciting.  We are trying to budget carefully, but long term.  Pray with us!

3.  My brother and I, after praise band Sunday.  Such a cool thing to play with him, having him back from the NAVY.  So glad he’s safe sound, and home with his wife and boys again.  We are praying for a good job for him.

4.   My two doing VBS music during Sunday’s service.  Actually, I think just my daughter is in this picture.  Flash hadn’t found courage just yet.  I got some video of him during the service, though!

5.  Leaves.  I am still in awe over crisp leaves with no glasses or contacts.  When I lay outside and open my eyes…I can see!  No dry contacts or glasses to fumble and find.  WOW!

6.  The impatiens that lived.  The other container, not so furtunate.  I have a hard time getting plants watered up on the porch!

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
